Specializing in Gottman MethodTM Couples and Marriage Counseling

Mary Beth George

Licensed Professional Counselor, Certified Gottman Therapist

Master Trainer and Consultant for The Gottman Institute

Online counseling will be available for couples counseling, individual counseling and marathon intensive counseling to provide you with a safe environment during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Mary Beth is passionate about helping couples heal from affairs/betrayals, relationship loneliness, perpetual conflicts and a loss of friendship and romance. She also works with pre-marital couples trying to prevent relationship problems, individuals in divorce recovery and singles wanting to improve their relationship skills.  She is proficient in dealing with couples or individuals with LGBTQ concerns, women’s issues, parenting pressures and personal growth. 

For traditional therapy sessions, counseling can be done in her office or online.  She also offers two – four day “marathon” therapy sessions for couples desiring a more intensive approach, couples who have difficulty scheduling weekly appointments or for those who do not have a Gottman Therapist in their area (her office is in close proximity to Bush Intercontinental Airport).   She teaches The Art & Science of Love couples weekend workshop four times per year in the Houston area, as well as co-presenting with colleagues in other states. Her style is warm, sometimes humorous, often direct and always collaborative. Her labradoodle, Fred, is a sweet, non-shedding co-therapist who sometimes joins her in sessions. 

As a Master Trainer for The Gottman Institute, Mary Beth teaches Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3 of Gottman Method Couples Therapy, works with clinicians in the Consultation Track to become Certified Gottman Therapists, and serves as a consultant for the Gottman University Outreach Program.  She has published articles on the Gottman Relationship Blog and Arianna Huffington’s Thrive Global.  She is on the Speaker’s Bureau for The Gottman Institute and available to do speaking engagements or provide interviews on a wide variety of relationship topics.

Originally from Pennsylvania, Mary Beth earned a Bachelor of Science in Nutrition from Penn State University.  After working for several years as a dietitian she recognized the need to augment those skills and pursued a Master of Education in Counseling from University of North Texas, graduating cum laude. She has over thirty years of experience, including teaching at Texas A&M University, working as a Therapist at Family Time Crisis and Counseling Center, and as a Clinical Manager at Parkland Hospital in Dallas.  In 2007 she and Alysha Roll joined forces to create what is now known as Couples Counseling and Psychotherapy Associates.

Over the last several years Mary Beth has recognized that clients benefit from an integrative approach that addresses physical and mental health, as well as spiritual growth.  Being in alignment with these three areas allows one to access their internal power and move towards their greatest potential.  Mary Beth’s counseling approach is an eclectic blend of cognitive behavioral strategies and mindfulness, as well as Gottman Method Couples Therapy. Additional training in treating couples includes the Externship for Emotionally Focused Therapy by Dr. Sue Johnson.

Walking the walk, Mary Beth integrates her beliefs about love and healthy relationships into her personal life with her husband, college age son (Gig’ em!), and two rescue dogs.  She loves to travel, hates yardwork and follows a gluten free diet out of need, not choice.  Rituals of connection with her husband include cycling, hiking and their love of Thanksgiving.
